We will be visiting leh in first week of October. We plan to spend one night at nubra valley. Will it be possible to visit pangong the next day from Nubra and go back to leh on that day. We don't want to spend night at pangong lake. Please advise.
AFAIK it is possible but you need to start the journey early in the morning so that you can spend at least couple of hours at pangong and not be much late to return.
But it is recommended to spend a night in pangong to witness a night sky filled with bright stars.
Remember, if you are travelling by car and local driver it is possible, but on bike or by car driving on own, make sure to carry enough fuel with you.
